Designing in The Lime Light

Well, my fantabulous weekend is coming to a close and what a weekend it was. I started out with my BFF and her daughter on Friday and headed over to Atlanta for the Scrapbook Expo 2009. WOW! Talk about a kid in a candy store! The very first booth we came to had everything for $1.00. ONE DOLLAR!!!! Well, as you can imagine, I totally racked up there! Then, we combed the entire expo and my pocketbook was 'almost' empty. But.....we headed to Archivers. A scrappers dream store! I was able to get the new Cosmo Cricket paper line - Early Bird!! was on sale! Once we finished up at Archivers, the pocketbook was definitely empty. Then, we headed to downtown Atlanta and met my son and his wife and the cutest little girl in the world..........Maggie! Yes, I got to have an early dinner with the Magster and then they followed us on the journey back home and spent the weekend with us. Maggie is only 17 months old and she is a human tape recorder. EVERYTHING you say..........she says! We had so much fun with her this weekend and I'm already looking forward to our next visit. So, it's been a wonderfully fun weekend and I hate for it to end. Here is a pic of the little Mags........a bathing beauty!

I now have some fabulous news for you. I am now a very proud design team member of The Lime Light! I'm so very excited to be a part of this fabulous and very gifted team! If you've not heard of us, here is a little of what the team is about, straight from the blog site:

We are a design team with a unique purpose. We use our crafting skills to help and bring light to others. We invite you to visit the site often to find out whom we are crafting for and what we are planning in the months to come. We have exciting plans that include making cards and bookmarks for our men and women in uniform, making journals for families whose children are in the hospital, making cards for baskets that help raise money for playground equipment....and that's just the beginning.

So, now do you see why I am so happy to be a part of this? I can't wait to start my first project. Please stop in and see what's going on at The Lime Light. Become a follower so you can keep up with what's happening and feel free to join in!! There are several opportunities for everyone to join in the fun and The Lime Light always accepts donations in the form of money and/or crafting materials to help out with the various projects. Click on my title above and go check it out.

Sorry for the long post, but wanted to update you. Thanks for stopping by today :)
